Half of learner drivers take free lessons with a parent to save cash - but they pay a price in stress instead, new research suggests.

The study showed stress-inducing side-effects of learning behind the wheel with mum or dad include being repeatedly yelled at (15 per cent) and parents grabbing the wheel during lessons (10 per cent).

And one in 20 learners (five per cent) said they almost had an accident while having a lesson with a parent or family member.

The online poll of 2,000 UK motorists with a full driving licence and who own their own car for Carfused.com found that 49 per cent of learners opted to take driving lessons with a parent or family member.
